BACKGROUND Ubiquitously occuring moulds are important allergenic sources known to elicit IgE-mediated allergic diseases and to share cross-reactive allergens. Limited information is available about the molecular structures involved in cross-reactivity. We aimed to clone and characterize cross-reactive mould allergens. METHODS Phage surface-displayed Alternaria alternata and Cladosporium herbarum cDNA libraries were screened using sera from Aspergillus fumigatus-sensitized patients. Inserts… CONTINUE READING
